PROCEDURE

Step 1
As soon as entries close, we will strive to produce the start sheet, showing your start time. It will be available on this page (below) and sent to you via text message/email.
Step 2 - Arrival
Arrive at the meeting point (details above) and collect your race number. Do not arrive at this point by car - please park elsewhere and ride over. There's a huge car park at the top, 5 seconds after the left turn at the finish.
No need to sign or bring anything.
New risks can emerge last minute - follow any additional safety information.
Step 3 - Warming Up
Please do not warm up on the course during the event.
Approach the start close to your time, but be careful to stay out of the road on the corner.
Step 4 - Racing
Go up the hill as fast as possible and watch out for potholes and rough surfaces at the start and on the right bend near the top. We have swept up gravel, but it may have returned somewhat.
Step 4 - Finish
At the finish, please stop after the cattle grid or on the left lane before turning round. Please do not stop in the middle of the road or attempt to do a u-turn at the finish line.
Please take the descent slowly and give climbers the priority at narrow points.
Step 5
Return your number, by leaving it in a box where you originally received it or at the top if it's more convenient.
Step 6
Send any videos and photos to us. We'd love to see what you captured.

TRAVELLING

IMPORTANT

Parking is not guaranteed for our events and they were originally devised with a short 5-30 minute ride out from Macclesfield in mind.
We are delighted that non-local riders from further out wish to travel long journeys to join us, but:
• If you are able to ride out without driving, please do so.
• Some events have zero or extremely limited space for vehicles. Please bear this in mind and see the map below for help.
• If you must drive, please consider car sharing with another driver to reduce congestion.

Parking Spaces
We are continually looking for suitable parking spaces close to our events and have added most of these to a map [Here]
Click on each location to see more information.
We cannot guarantee that these will be available on the day, so please leave early if you're planning to park somewhere remote.

Park & Ride Recommendation
Are you driving out? If you can, please use our (80) FREE parking spaces in central Macclesfield and ride out from there.
These are at Waterside, SK11 7HG and have been secured specifically, with the help of various local businesses/offices.
[Map Here]

Local residents are doing their best to keep the courses clear for us, so please do the same and avoid parking near the course if possible. Several courses contain junctions with private roads/driveways and should not be used or blocked under any circumstances.
